Visual Arts Exhibition

Pic of Andrew James

The Wooburn Festival Visual Arts Exhibition is at the heart of the Wooburn Festival. St. Paul’s Church Hall is converted into a professional and vibrant art gallery showing original paintings, sculpture, ceramics, glass and jewellery from the best artists in the Chilterns and beyond.

We are delighted to announce that our featured artist this year will be portrait painter Andrew James. Based in Royal Tunbridge Wells, Kent, Andy is a highly sought after Artist, who has worked on many prestigious commissions of public figures. From a very early age Andy shared a passion for art with his twin brother Paul. In 1987 he decided to pursue painting full time and at the age of 17 he undertook a 10 year project to develop his work through self-directed study.

Winning the Carroll Foundation Award in 1998 helped bring his work to a much wider audience and with election to the Royal Society of Portrait Painters four years later Andy was able to establish himself fully as a portrait painter. Further exposure came from a successful appearance in BBC 1’s Star Portraits. In 2017 he became a member of the New English Art Club.
